Since alot of us play a lot of games, as we have seen in three threads, I think it would be a good idea to figure who plays what MMORPG's (Massivle Multiplay Online Role Playing Games) Such as World of Warcraft, Everquest 2, Star Wars Galaxies, Guild Wars, or EvE, since they are a lot easier to talk to eachother in than say, Warcraft 3 etc.

I play Guild Wars.

I used to play Anarchy online... but it sucked so I stopped. I played Second Life for awhile never got the hang of it and was never really able to create anything, so I stopped. I play no MMORPGs any longer unless you count those text-based computer calculated games... which suck.

I'd suggest guild wars to you, Brote, because I just started playing a couple days ago and it's fairly easy to get a hang of. It has a good balance of PvP and adventuring (I swear, I've already gotten lost like 10 times). That, and it's a one-time-pay dealie.

No I unfortunately dont play any MMORPGs. I find the idea a bit dodgy to be honest.

Well that and the fact that you're playing against someone who could be some hacker for all you know.

Well...In an MMORPG theres 3 things about hackers. 1) The Developers usually have everything walled up against being able to hack. 2) Anyone that does hack will, likely within the hour, be banned from the game, either for a while or forever. 3) You really don't play against people...so hacking wouldn't really give you the edge except in duel's

I don't like the pay to play bit. I know you're paying for additions to the game, but that's stupid. I could make my own system of a d20 game or alter existing Star Wars d20 or D&D games to expand a universe that is run similarily to an MMORPG, without as many locks on what you can do creatively. I'd get Guild Wars since it's free, but I'm broke. I've heard it's really good. I've actually heard a lot of MMORPGs are good, but everyone says the rest suck. And I know none of them have played the rest, except the one who played Galaxies. However, he hasn't played newer MMORPGs, so I'm counting him in the "none of them have played the rest".

Well, if by new, you mean Everquest or WoW, than I've played both those for short periods. They're alright, but them and Guild Wars are somewhat simmilar, expect Guild Wars doesn't have you pay 120-180 bucks a year.

I've also played EvE, actually, I think I've played every game I mentioned atleast a little.

I just realized I've posted every other reply Joke

Woah, dudes. A friend of mine is completely obsessed with Everquest 2. She won't even touch other games. Including the copy of Guild Wars she owns.

That's also stange...

Can anyone say "obsession"? Joke

I honestly don't see what's so amazing about EQ2, I only was able to do the trial, but it's exactly the same as WoW, or pretty darn close. Just IMO.
Although it may be a little more expansive.

Edit: Sorry, didn't realie you already said she was obsessed Neutral

Since when did playing an MMORPG mean you have no life? I don't see how it's different from any other game. I play soccer, I have friends, I do stuff, I have a life. But I can still play my MMORPG...

Only power-gamers have no life.

I have a life, a very productive one in fact, but the way this game is going has made me think about focusing on it more.

David, he is right. We can't stop him, it's his choice to have 5/9 of his post having spelling/grammar mistakes... Joke

I dunno, EVE is alright, but it's a little too expansive. I mean, it takes like 5 minutes to come out of the hyper-jump thing and go to the nearest space station. It also requires a lot of attention with the skill building, since it doesn't take "experience" but it takes about 3 hours for a level 1 skill to be upgraded. Although it is nice that you can have it skill build itself behind-the-scenes.

EvE is OK, a little to expansive, lots of content but too spread out.
SWG, Fine, played forever...didn't hold up to expectations
WoW, Good, but not a fan of Warcraft
EQ 2, sucked, not as good as WoW, graphics disappointing.
EQ 1, awesome, old now.

GW, Excellent, Good content, PvP & continued development, One time fee.

On the Horizion:
X3, the successor to X2 and XCom. Its Freelancer in feel, graphics look great, they have a lot of cool functionality they are adding (Own fleets of ships, conduct real time raids in multiple loactions with said fleets, effect the ingame market for goods (ala destroying Alderann made the prices for its Ale skyrocket), proven development team, and One time fee. Due out this winter.
